Lindsay Sloane (Weeds, Grosse Pointe) has joined the cast of NBC’s Sean Hayes-fronted comedy pilot (tentatively titled Happiness), TVLine has learned exclusively.
The project, from Better Off Ted creator Victor Fresco, centers on a man (Hayes) attempting to both parent the teenage daughter who just moved in and appease a temperamental boss (Reno 911! alum Thomas Lennon).
Sloane will play Liz, the BFF of Hayes’ character.
The cast also includes sitcom vet Linda Lavin as Hayes’ mom.
Fresco penned the script and will serve as an EP alongside Hayes and Todd Milliner (Hot in Cleveland, Grimm).
